Bird Streets is John Brodeur's new project, with production from Jason Falkner (Jellyfish, TV Eyes). John is also in Austin. Newly signed to Omnivore records, the label is ripping him for syncs, and I'm plugging his songs. Listen to "Betting on the Sun," which is sounds like Elvis Costello meets Brian Wilson.
Rachael Sage has been an inspiration to friends for years. She's performing Saturday afternoon, March 16 at 4:45 PM CT, at Art.Work, 201 E 5th St., in Austin.
Rachael performs in London on May 16 at the Bedford.
Next week she's releasing an acoustic album (PSEUDOMYOPIA) of songs from her current full band collection: MYOPIA.
"Alive" is such an upbeat song, listing topical possibilities "including microfilm being pulled out of the archive," " the olympics where nobody ever cheats!" She mentions Frida Kahlo, and the hook "IT’S GOOD TO BE ALIVE."
